The Ryan Tubridy Show will broadcast from Inis Mór this summer as part of a new campaign to promote the Wild Atlantic Way.
Fáilte Ireland is bringing Ryan Tubridy and the RTÉ Radio 1 crew all along the west coast in their new marketing campaign to ‘Embrace the Wild Atlantic Way of Life’ this summer.
Inis Mór will be the last stop on the tour known as ‘Tubs on the Wild Atlantic Way’ with a live broadcast from the Kilronan Tourism Office on June 6.
During his time on the largest of the Aran Islands the radio and television presenter will explore Inis Mór by horse and trap and visit the stunning Dun Aonghasa.
“The Wild Atlantic Way is calling and we’re taking to the road to visit just some of the most beautiful and welcoming spots along the route,” said Tubridy, speaking about the upcoming tour.
“From Donegal, to Sligo, Clare and the Aran Islands we’ll be weaving a piece of the Wild Atlantic Way magic into our listeners days and, as ever, I’m looking forward to getting out and meeting the locals and characters along the way.”
The show on Inis Mór will involve interviews with local tourism businesses from the surrounding area and discussing some of the many activities and experiences available to anyone touring the Wild Atlantic Way.
Looking forward to the arrival of the popular RTE Radio 1 show, Joan Crawford, Wild Atlantic Way Manager, Fáilte Ireland, said that Ryan Tubridy makes a fantastic ambassador for the Wild Atlantic Way.
